Australian Federal MP, Craig Kelly, permanently banned from Facebook Featured

By

There's no free speech on US social media platform Facebook, which has banned independent Australian Federal MP, Craig Kelly, on a permanent basis following a previous temporary ban.

The taxpayer-funded Australian Broadcasting Corporation, (ABC) has reported independent Australian MP, Craig Kelly, has been permanently banned from Facebook.

The ABC quoted a Facebook spokesperson stating: "We don't allow anyone, including elected officials, to share misinformation about COVID-19 that could lead to imminent physical harm or COVID-19 vaccines that have been debunked by public health experts.

"We have clear policies against this type of content and have removed Mr Kelly's Facebook Page for repeated violations of this policy."

Kelly reportedly told the ABC he has a "second Facebook page", although that page will presumably be banned, too. 

The ABC quoted a text message from Kelly stating: "This was the most popular, highly used political Facebook page in the country. They have basically burnt and torched and incinerated and obliterated from the record, previous comments and previous things that I'd made."

Kelly is well known in Australia for promoting hydroxycholorquine as a treatment for COVID-19.
